What are you looking for in a Realtor®?
The things you want your Realtor® to be are probably pretty simple: knowledgeable, ethical, and experienced. Shelly has earned the designations that attest that he possesses those qualities.
But here are some other things you might want your Realtor to be. Creative. Focused. Driven. Meticulous. Internet savvy. Nice. (Nice? Well, yes. Selling or buying a home, you will be spending time with your Realtor.)
Focused and driven? Sounds a little intense. But in this market, when there are often five or six offers on the table, focus and drive can be what gets your offer accepted.
Creative? Actually, creativity can come into every aspect of the real estate process. If you want to sell your home for top dollar, you'll want marketing that stands out from the crowd, and that reaches qualified buyers. Creativity can be a factor in structuring a purchase offer that is irresistable to a seller. Creativity can also come into play to help move past a roadblock during escrow.
Meticulous. The definition of meticulous is "extremely careful and precise, showing attentiveness to all aspects or details..." When drafting the sales contract and going through the escrow process, there a thousand and one small but vital details, deadlines, inspections and contingencies to track and to follow through on. You'll definitely want your Realtor to be meticulous.
Internet Savvy. In a time when many more buyers are starting their home search on the Internet than in the print media, you'll want a Realtor who is Internet savvy. Someone who can present your home on the Internet in ways the competition can't.
And, of course, nice.
